Yup, once again it’s time for the sickest thread on the board.
1 - You pick thirteen famous people who you think will die in the upcoming year.
2 - Each pick you make who dies in the year 2002 gives you 100 points minus their age at death. If you pick someone who dies over the age of a hundred, you score zero points for them. If, by chance, one of your picks dies before January 1, you can replace him or her with a new pick but you won’t score any points.
3 - All picks must be posted by the start of the new year. Or at least in the immediate vicinity thereof.
4 - Celebrity status will be determined loosely. In case of
disagreement, a majority vote of the posters will be binding.
5 - Persons currently under sentence of capitol punishment will only be valid for scoring points if they die by means other than official execution.
6 - Any poster who kills or otherwise contributes to the death of any celebrity mentioned in this thread will be disqualified.
7 - You can’t pick fictional people. You can’t pick animals. You can’t pick multiple choices. You can’t pick people who are already dead. You can’t pick anyone under the age of 16. You can’t pick anyone who has posted on this board.
8 - Anyone I pick will not die. I swear. In fact, I’m not going to pick Osama bin Laden just becuase I hate the SOB and I don’t want to be responsible for his escape from justice.
